Of Buddhist texts the Heart Sutra is most highly regarded. This is the text that challenges the existence of form and of time.
The Heart Sutra has been translated many times and exists in many forms. It is more than a thousand years old and has been chanted daily by monks in many Asian countries.
This Sutra makes use of contradictions that belie achievement in favor of understanding. It is a contemplation of the void.
The calligraphy used here is beautifully executed, active and full of life.
Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
We also have another example of this sutra engraved on a Sailor pen, the Sailor Hannya Shinkyo.
